Modal Electronics has announced Volume 2 for the critically acclaimed Argon Series synthesizers’ factory library as part of a new version 2.4 firmware update.

Fueled by a unique wavetable architecture for a rich, dynamic and unique sound, Modal Electronics’ Argon Series have cemented themselves as the ultimate modern wavetable synth for contemporary music performers, producers and sound designers.

Fusing a plethora of real time controls for tactile mastery of all principal synth parameters, with full MPE support, 1:1 MODALapp integration, studio-friendly I/O and a nod to the heritage of their legendary 00 Series synthesizers, the Argon Series is a true sound designers playground.

Volume 2 of the Factory Preset library for the ARGON8, ARGON8M and ARGON8X, guarantees to further spark users’ creative workflow whilst simultaneously showcasing the full capability of these mainstays in the Modal Electronics Line.

Everything the modern music producer and composer demands is thoroughly included in 300 all new presets, plus 100 MPE-ready patches currently available in the existing Volume 1 library: deep, thunderous basslines, cutting-edge leads, mutable soundscapes, classic subtractive-style tones and even a collection of world music inspired sounds. Whatever the project, ARGON delivers with this expertly curated collection of presents applicable to any genre.

Aside from the new Factory Library Volume 2, the following feature enhancements are now available with the v2.4 firmware update:

  • Added more LFO synced divisions.
  • Added Extended Oscillator Drift to upper range of Drift control.
  • Added ‘Master’ Clock Source mode that always sends out MIDI clock.
  • Improved MIDI reliability on macOS Big Sur.
  • Improved arpeggiator sync when working with external sequencers.
  • Improved expression pedal behavior.
  • Improved LFO1 sync when clocked from external MIDI.

Additionally, Modal is offering a 50 USD/EUR/GBP cash-back on a purchase of a Argon or Cobalt Series synthesizer and entry into a Golden Ticket Prize draw to win a dream sound designers setup. The offer is valid through September 30th, 2021.
